App runs locally and fails on remote machine

Why does an application work on a developer machine and fail on a customer machine?

Usually because you didn't distribute the runtime dll's with the application.

Trap Load Errors

You should always trap errors around attempts to load the database. It may be corrupt, or the access mode may not be available, etc.

Entity Framework Failures

See the topic on runtime Entity Framework distribution. Applications built using EF need to use an app.config to tell the Entity Framework where to find the provider factory.
